What can I spend my money on?

Your salary packaged funds can be used to take care of regular payments such as: mortgage and rent payments, personal loan repayments, and even bills and utilities. Any routine payment that can be paid electronically (and you have acceptable proof of debt for) can usually be set up through CBB.

You can also choose to load your funds onto a CBB Salary Packaging Card, which can be used to pay for groceries, petrol, and other household goods with tax free dollars. Just imagine how much money you could save on everyday essentials.

Want to know how it all works?

Our friendly salary packaging team take care of the process for you, leaving you free to enjoy the benefits. Here’s how we make it happen:

  1. Your payroll team sends your tax-free income to CBB.
  2. You let us know which regular payments you would like us to pay with your tax-free income. Alternatively, you can have us put it straight on a CBB Salary Packaging Card for use wherever Visa is accepted.
  3. You only pay tax on what’s left of your income. Because you pay less tax, you end up with more take home pay. Between 6-12% more, to be exact!

Novated leasing

Want to pay for your new car with tax-free dollars?

Considering buying a new, ex-demo, or used car? Good news: with a novated lease, you can save thousands on your next vehicle.

What is a novated lease?

A novated lease is a car finance option approved by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) where your repayments are calculated using the perfect mix of your pre-tax and post-tax dollars, helping you maximise your tax savings as you won’t pay any fringe benefits tax. A novated lease gives you access to fleet pricing, and the vehicle is financed with no GST, saving you even more money.
